KUCHING, Jan 6: Democratic Action Party Socialist Youth (DAPSY) Stampin Division is gearing up in preparation for the upcoming State Election to ensure the party will capture both Batu Kitang and Batu Kawah state seats with a resounding majority.
Its newly elected division chief Abdul Aziz Isa revealed that one of the agendas discussed during the Stampin Division’s first Annual General Meeting (AGM) was to ensure DAP won all three state seats, namely Batu Kitang, Batu Kawah, and Kota Sentosa.
“The youth wing will ensure that the party will capture both Batu Kitang and Batu Kawah state seats with a resounding majority.
“Although SUPP (Sarawak United Peoples’ Party) won both Batu Kawah and Batu Kitang constituencies, they failed to keep their promises and resolve major issues the public faced,” he said in a statement today.
Despite SUPP being part of the ruling government both at the State and Federal levels, Aziz Isa alleged that they were still trying hard to blame DAP for their failures, indicating that SUPP was more interested in playing politics rather than helping people.
“As such, it’s high time for the voters in Batu Kitang and Batu Kawah to vote for new State assemblymen who know how to solve practical issues and take accountability for their actions,” he added.
As such in addressing the members at the AGM, Aziz Isa told DAPSY Stampin members to close ranks and face the challenges ahead together.
“Although DAP is no longer a part of the ruling party at the federal level, the most important thing now is for the party to focus and remain united in facing the challenges ahead especially in the upcoming state election.
“This is because the next state election will be an uphill battle for all political parties,” he reminded.
Noting that the State Election was predicted to be called somewhere in the middle of March this year after Chap Goh Meh and before the month of Ramadan, he added that the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Sarawak has also recently announced the seats that component parties will contest.
Aziz Isa, who was voted unanimously at the AGM to lead the Stampin Division, pledged to give his undivided effort to work for the people and party.
He emphasised determination to work harder with the new committee line-up for the benefit of the community in Stampin especially on issues pertaining to road maintenance, welfare assistance, setting up of more recreational and sports centres, equal job opportunities, efficient public transportation, improving internet connection speed, maintaining peace and security in residential areas, curbing drugs abuse, and perimeter survey for Native Customary Rights (NCR) land.
The AGM was chaired by Leslie Ting who is also DAPSY Sarawak organising secretary. -DayakDaily
